According to AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson, AC/DC are "very likely" to tour before the end of the year. Johnson posted the news on his auto-racing website. While thanking fans for their support for his U.K. TV series, Cars That Rock, he added: "[This] was my first ever go at presenting a TV series — and even though it may not show, I was real nervous. So am very relieved that you all seem to be enjoying it.
Before AC/DC's Malcolm and Angus Young took us down the Highway to Hell, they joined their brother, George Young, and guitarist Harry Vanda to form the Marcus Hook Roll Band, a band that never left the studio.
AC/DC are more than just a great rock band, they're an institution. Trends may come and go, but their unique brand of rhythm 'n bruise has proven to be timeless. Angus Young, the band 's lead playing livewire, has also deservedly attained a legendary standing in the business. In fact, one of modern rock's leading lights, Jerry Cantrell of Alice in Chains, recently refered to him as "the absolute god of blues-rock guitar."
The Badpiper, aka "the world's only flame-throwing, leather clad, heavily tattooed punk rock warrior," recently performed AC/DC's "Thunderstruck" on the streets of Fremantle, Australia. And lucky you — you get to see it below.
AC/DC, one of the last big holdouts to make their music available on iTunes, have finally relented. Starting today, the Australian hard-rock band's entire catalog is now available digitally — all on iTunes.
Next week, AC/DC will release an album version of their acclaimed live DVD, Live at River Plate, on both CD and LP. Ahead of its release, the band have shared a live video of the Back In Black classic "You Shook Me All Night Long" taken from the DVD. Check it out below.
